Evoqua's well-configured fleet of IT-enabled treatment systems can deploy rapidly to restore water services with minimal disruptions to the industrial operations
SANTA CLARA, California, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global water technology solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Evoqua with the 2018 Global Company of the Year Award. It has earned this recognition for its strong revenue growth in 2017, its focus on the customer experience, and advanced water and wastewater treatment technologies for a variety of applications in the municipal and industrial sectors.
"Evoqua's extensive product portfolio of treatment technologies, covering intake screens and activated carbon filtration to dewatering and odor and corrosion control, makes it not just a leading provider of individual technologies but an integrated system and service provider," said Fredrick Harry Royan, Vice President at Frost & Sullivan. "Formerly Siemens Water Technologies, Evoqua has accrued 1,250 patents for water solutions in the municipal, industrial, and institutional segments."
Evoqua had the following outstanding achievements throughout 2017, leading to its prominent market position:
- An order for 19 miles of its patented Envirex high-strength loop chain for installation at Detroit's wastewater treatment plant (WWTP)
- The introduction of a service solution for its electro chlorination systems; the service was extended to the products of other suppliers
- A contract to supply its MemPulse membrane bioreactor (MBR) system at the Start City WWTP
- An order to supply 18 of its rotating biological contactors for the Port Chester, NY WWTP
- The Alkagen AQ Solution was selected for odor control at Siesta Key WWTP
- Its selection by Boeing to supply water treatment services at its 19 facilities
- It acquired Noble Water Technologies and ADI Systems to cement its industry-leading position, especially in the North American market
- It acquired the Olson Irrigation System to enter the agriculture and irrigation segment
Another important feature of Evoqua's success is its ability to stay ahead of the technology curve. It has responded to the increasing digitization of the water treatment industry by adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technology. It also uses remote technology to engage with customers more effectively. For instance, it analyzes information to identify potential issues with its systems, which enables it to prepare to deploy either temporary technologies or emergency services for unexpected events.
"Evoqua's value lies in being a life cycle partner to its customers, predicting their needs, and offering suggestions ahead of time. Although IoT is useful in this respect, it is the company's industrial expertise that has held it in good stead," noted Royan.

The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products and technologies, and the resulting leadership in terms of customer value and market penetration.
